4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
very much a significant amount of bitter hops on the palate. Not so much that you suck air in through tangy lips, but that’s a noise that’s making itself heard. (it does say on the label.....) That pine aroma seems to carry through to the taste, which is very long as a taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle. Pours golden clear with ultra thin white head. Very hoppy aroma. And very bitter taste. Correction, my second glass had a bigger and longer lasting head. Good strong IPA from NZ.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12.07.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is foresty, pine needles, moss, bark, caramel malts, leafs, hops, grass, alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet concentrated grassy, old leafs, soil, bark, pine needles, caramel malts, hops, grass, alcohol, weeds. Longlasting bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Gyldengul. Veldig høyt kritthvitt luftig skum. Litt lacing. Varer. Lettskyet. Kjempegod fruktig aroma. Plommer & fersken. Smaken ananas & plommer. Litt tørr etter hvert. Balansert.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Golden. Some white head. Resin and grapefruit nose. Thick, oily body and low carbonation (true to style). Grapefruit, pine, resin, citrus and some malt aroma. Bitter. Only just an IIPA, wouldn’t be surprised if it was classified as an IPA. Good though.

Gylden farge med medium høyde på skummet. Aroma av appelsinskall, sitrus, grapefrukt, humle og vagt av malt. Smaken er grapefrukt, furu, appelsin og malt. Flust med humle, dette er en bitter sak! Bitterheten sitter i lenge i ettersmaken, sammen med smaken av appelsin. Medium konsistens.
